Catalogue Note

"What type of painter is Henry Taylor? He is described by others with labels he mostly rejects—outsider, portraitist, protest painter, folk artist—or rejects as far as they are intended as mutually exclusive terms...It's his practice to seek people out—in the street, at the art fair, at his Momma's house—and figure them in paint, but each figure is configured differently, sometimes hewing closely to verisimilitude, sometimes ignoring it, sometimes attending to the proportion of limbs, other times leaving them out entirely. This variousness of approach finds its mirror in his life, which has also been a story of many different elements combined."

Zadie Smith, Henry Taylor, New York 2018, p. 8
